School Leader Internship: Developing, Monitoring, and Evaluating Your Leadership Experience
School leadership internships are the bridge between classroom teachers and first-time leadership positions. Research shows that quality internships are equally as important as the graduate programs themselves in establishing leadership practices that improve teaching, learning, and school conditions. This book was written as a stand-alone graduate textbook and serves as a guide and support for creating and managing quality school leader internship programs. It provides step-by-step guidance for interns, their supervisors, and their faculty on how to initiate an internship and evaluate interns' work. In this updated third edition, the authors have aligned the internship to the revised ISLLC standards, making this book critical for the over 500 leadership preparation programs nationwide and the thousands of school districts that support leadership candidates.

Managing and Supporting Instructional Design and Development
Managing and Supporting Instructional Design and Development is a practical guide to managing multiple levels of instructional design activities, based upon management concept and application as well as instructional design process and application. The book takes an integrated approach within each level of an instructional design project: lesson, block, course, and courses leading to a certificate or degree. Topics of special focus ranging from scope and estimation to personnel and communication are addressed initially as discrete and segregated topics and later elaborated in more detail within the context of the different project or program levels. This volume includes a systemic perspective, elaborated examples, meaningful activities, engaging exercises, multiple contexts, and best practices. In addition, each chapter that introduces the students to instructional project management at a particular project or program level has an integrated, scenario based project activity for students and faculty to develop. The book concludes with an examination of challenging instructional project management tasks, situations, and environments. A companion website contains examples, resources, and activities will be maintained to complement the contents and maintain currency with new and relevant technologies.

Aspects of Educational Change
In recent years teachers have realized that change has become a permanent factor on the educational scene and therefore its operation or mechanism must not just be accepted, or even rejected, but above all understood. This book presents an approach towards some real understanding of educational changes and innovations. A number of mechanisms and processes are discussed and analysed in an attempt to present some sort of overview of the agents involved in change, an analysis of the major characteristics of resisters and innovators, an account of the traits and functions of innovative institutions and a description of three particular models which delineate the way in which change occurs. In the final section of the text attention is given to some contemporary educational innovations, and some suggestions provided for dealing with problems involved in their evaluation.

Everyone working in education needs a clear understanding of the professional standards required of teachers and school leaders.

Clearly explaining the nature of the standards the writers demonstrate how they relate to the real world of teaching and leadership and point out key issues for the future. The final chapters of the book set the application of standards into a more critical framework and suggest how the standards can meet future as well as current needs.
